The Burrows Supported Living, Droitwich

This brand new purpose built supported living scheme, for young autistic adults with complex needs consist of eight individual flats. As a specialist autism provider Autism West Midlands offer new and innovative ways of working to provide support that is person centred and focuses on empowering individuals.
New and Innovative ways of working
A lot of thought and consideration has been given to the design of the build to make sure it meets the needs of autistic people. Further adaptations have been made to meet the needs of each individual who will be living at the scheme.
As well as being an innovative design the scheme will offer new and creative ways of receiving support through the use of assistive technology. This technology aims to enable people to receive support in the least restrictive way. Technology may include monitoring and alerting systems to support the management of health conditions such as Epilepsy, adaptations to the environment to help reduce anxiety as well as offer opportunity for people to develop their independence skills.
Why work for a Specialist Provider?
Working for Autism West Midlands offers those who have a passion for person centred support to be part of this new and innovative journey. A journey that will change the way people can receive support. All our staff will receive specialist training around assistive technology and will play a key role in supporting people to greater independence.
We understand that the key to providing good support is recruiting, retaining and valuing our support staff. Our commitment to our staff is at the heart of our values and we place great importance on providing the right tools, support and information to our staff. We value the commitment, dedication and skills that each support worker brings to Autism West Midlands.
This is a great opportunity to come and be part of a new specialist, empowered and enthusiastic team who want to make sure everyone receives the best support. If you are looking for a new challenge and would like the opportunity to work for a specialist provider we would like to hear from you.
